11:00 am
marathon's return has been all about. the whole city overcoming the worst and getting back to its best. one step at a time. tom foreman, cnn. >> admire those people a lot. that's it for be. thanks very much for watching. i'll be back 5:00 p.m. eastern in "the situation room." "newsroom" continues right now with brooke baldwin. it's called a virgin tax. nl rookies shelling out big bucks, part of a hazing ritual. but in one locker room, did it go too far, sending one player over the edge? >> i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. police missing the alleged l.a.x. gunman by minutes. you will hear from his roommate. >> midair scare. two planes collide, but every passenger survives. thanks to what they wore on their backs. plus --
11:01 am
♪ that that don't kill me >> kanye west scorched the confederate flag, but will his young white fans imitate the rapper? and -- >> are you okay? >> a new drug reverses overdoses, including this woman's brush with death, all caught on video. and here we go. i'm brooke baldwin. thank you so much for being with me on this monday. more than a decade, she was held captive along with two other women enduring just absolute unspeakable torture in the home of ariel castro. now, michelle knight is sharing some of the startling details about her time inside that home in cleveland. sitting down for an incredibly emotional interview with dr. phil. but before we play a clip, i have to warn you, what you're about to hear from michelle knight is pretty disturbing.
11:02 am
>> so he gets you in this room. what did he tie you up with? >> one of those orange extension cords. i was tied up like a fish, an ornament on the wall. that's the only way i can describe it. i was hanging like this. my feet and i was tied by my neck and my arms with the extension cord around my back. >> oh, my god. so he tied your hands and feet, and also around your neck? and hung you? >> ooh, in august, castro was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years. after pleading guilty to 937 counts, including murder and kidnapping. a month later, he committed suicide in his prison cell. martin savidge was all over the story from the very beginning in cleveland, joins me now in studio. there really aren't words, i feel like, to put to what we
11:03 am
just saw. that's one clip of what i'm sure is an incredible and emotional and stunning interview with dr. phil. why is she talking? >> you know, that's a good question. i think the reason she's speaking out now is clearly, she has reached the point in her recovery that she's comfortable in talking about these details. she's spoken out before. we know that. the very dramatic showdown in the sentencing in the courtroom where she confronts -- >> her tiny frame and her mighty words. >> exactly. i was in the courtroom, and you were so caught up by it. this was a woman who has spoken out, but to hear those details, and even though they were in a police report, you know, i struggle to find -- i was just impacted by them, shocked, horrified, chilled by it all. and it's amazing when you hear her speak. i guess she's speaking out now because for her, the time is right. >> just seeing her, we were remarking watching the clip, just almost sitting with her legs up close on that sofa, just her body language, i think, pretty powerful. also, though, when you see dr. phil and the cut aways of
11:04 am
his face, he has said -- he talked to a lot of people who endured a lot of trauma. this left an impression on him. >> he told that to the cleveland plain dealer, perhaps of all the peek she's spoken to, this young woman has perhaps been the most impactful. he said changed his life. that's easy to understand because i have been around michelle, been in her presence. there is something about her, of course, no doubt, the fact she survived what was just absolute hell on earth, but she is so different. she's smiling, she will engage you. she talks to you. she is in every way uplifting and inspiring because you know in the back of your mind, this young girl has been through the worst that life could possibly deliver. >> she lived through the hell. amanda berry lived through the hell. her child, gina dejesus, where are those two women? >> they're recovering as well. keep ipmind, they're much younger. michelle knight is 32. they're almost a decade younger. as a result, they're sort of reconnecting with their friends and their family.
11:05 am
for those young women, i'm not saying it's any easier. it's just that they have taken a different path and they're not as outspoken. they're all working on the book, handled by one of the most powerful author representatives in washington, d.c. who represented the likes of the clintons. so it looks like they're ready to tell the story in a big way. >> that will be quite a read. thank you very much. we should tell you that anderson cooper sat down with and spoke with dr. phil about this exclusive interview with michelle knight. wa thatight on ac 360 tonight. >> police just missed him be near minutes, as investigators trying to piece together friday's shooting at the l.a. international airport. we are now today learning new details about the suspect and a possible motive. prompted by a warning by paul ciancia's family in new jersey, police went to the alleged l.a.g. gunman's apartment the morning of the shooting.
11:06 am
his family frantically called police after text message after text message from ciancia warned something would happen. he left for l.a.x. 45 minutes earlier. meanwhile, one woman who knows this alleged gunman and his three room mates says he was plotting his crime days before the rampage. >> he asked one of the room mates if he could have a ride to the airport. >> why did he need a ride? >> he said he was going going back home, his dad was sick and he had to deal with family issues. >> did anyone see a ticket? >> no, he also didn't mention the day he had to leave. that morning, he doesn't knock, just opened the door and says i have to leave. take me now. >> did he ever express hatred toward the government or the tsa. >> all the nsa findings that came out this year, he was upset and he thought tsa abused their power. >> cnn has confirmed this photo making its rounds online is
11:07 am
legitimate. it shows ciancia was not wearing any sort of special protective clothing when he was shot. she is still listed in critical condition at ucla medical center. and the l.a. county coroner has confirmed tsa worker gerardo hernandez died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. he's the first tsa official to die in the line of duty since the agency was created in 2001. >> and in the frantic moments after gerardo hernandez was shot and killed, airport police reacted very quickly. they were 60 seconds behind ciancia, but could that reaction time have been quicker? could armed tsa agents have prevented something as horrendous as what played out at terminal three on friday. eric holder said this morning they will need to reassess after the investigation is complete. >> the investigation obviously under way, and part of that investigation will be a review of the security measures that
11:08 am
were in place. not only at l.a.x. but i think a review of the security arrangements that exist in other airports as well. the function of the tsa is to insure that people can board planes safely. take flights safely. the responsibility for protecting airport security is not a ts ark function, but something i think we need to certainly examine, given what happened in los angeles. >> let's get the perspective here. let me bring in former flight attendant and author tiffany hawk. welcome to you. i thunderstand the urge to reac and you understand the urge to protect people, innocent people at the airport. we heard from eric holder. you say do not arm these tsa officers. why? >> right. i think everybody wants to feel safer at the airport, and inquestion is, is arming foi40, to 50,000 badgen screeners make
11:09 am
you feel safer? some people might think it would. i personally wouldn't. i'm not opposed to trained police who have been using weapons, having a bigger prerns in the airport, but there's the problem of cost. can airlines handle that cost? but also, when it comes to airline employees, you don't know what's going to happen. people can get disgruntled, become unhinged. to add that many more weapons to the screening process, it just brings up other problems. as we have seen, first, they thought it was a tsa agent who was trying to kill other tsa agents. so a lot of our problems aren't coming from terrorism, yes, that's a huge concern, but so are neighbors and coworkers that have become unhimpged, become unstable or disgruntled. i think an industry that has so much stress is not the place to add -- >> you would know as a former flight attendant. you point out, your husband is a pilot.
11:10 am
you are all for security. let me read this, this is part of your opinion piece that jumped out at me in this post-9/11 era. you said i was never a fan of armed pilots. another flight attendant might have felt insured, but when i walked into a cockpit to find a pilot with a gun on his lap, i was rattled. i had met the guy before, had no reason to distrust him, but even the thought of an incident was enough to question my safety. is it about people or is it about guns? >> it's a little bit of both, when you're adding -- you can screen people, but you don't know what's going to happen later in their lives or in the work place, as we have seen a lot of things do come from workers attacking their own coworkers in the work space. also, accidents. when it comes to arming pilots, there's a whole different, level. many people are for that. we have seen a few small accidents, which i think is the
11:11 am
best case scenario. when a gun goes off in the cockpit, that's extremely dangerous to the whole airplane. so creating more weapons in a volatile environment already, i personally wouldn't feel safer. i would feel even less safe. but i think there are people who are going to differ who think you should arm all mall cops and all movie theater ushers and teachers and everything. >> two different schools of thought. >> exactly. >> tiffany hawk, thank you so much. >> thank you. coming up, two skydiving planes collide. amazingly, everyone onboard survived. i'll speak with one sky diver who nearly died on an accident on his own. >> plus, did a so-called virgin tax push one football player over the edge? in a world of millionaires, is this hazing? is this bullying? is what we're watching in miami unprecedented. >> and blackberry's big announcement and firing could tell us the future of the company. that's next. you're watching cnn.
11:12 am
i'm on expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for, because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them,

11:14 am
11:15 am
nthat's why they deserve... aer anbrake dance. get 50% off new brake pads and shoes. blackberry abandoned its search for a buyer. company executives have decided to drop plans to sell the troubled smartphone empire. today's news sent corporate stock tumbling, but it's not all lost, apparently. they said instead of selling, it's picking up a $1 billion investment. thorston hines is also stepping down. the company declined to explain why it had the change of heart, but financial experts say it is possible that potential suitors either couldn't come up with the money or lost interest after examining blackberry's books.
11:16 am
time to talk about the nfl. it's known to crack down hard on illegal hits and celebratory touchdowns, but now you can add alleged bullying. incognito is suspended indefinitely as they're examining cruel treatment to a teammate. the cause of the abrupt departure remained a mystery until yesterday. martin's lawyer made former allegations of player misconduct. and if you were keeping up with the reports here, multiple outlets began naming incognito as the main culprit. one report indicates martin was required to contribute $15,000 to veteran players for a trip to vegas, a trip he actually did go on himself, but martin paid up because he feared the consequences. incognito, meantime, took to twitter blasting the reports, tweeting, shame on you for attaching my name to false
11:17 am
speculation. i donwon't be holding my breathr an apology. hours later, they handed down the suspension. terrance moore is here with me. i think we have something unprecedented, it seems like, on our hands with regard to the players. first, i want to talk about jonathan martin. this is a smart guy, brainy guy, stanford guy. tell me more. >> no question about that. a very cerebral, also a guy who is not very comfortable in a crowd, from what i understand. he's a guy that's somewhat socially awkward. so a perfect target for this type of thing. and brooke, let me add this. there are so many people out there who are saying how can a 300-pound offensive lineman be bullied? what they don't understand, you have different types of bullying. you have physical, you have mental and emotional. and that's what's taken place here. you know, and you can see that he was a target that was an easy prey for a big bully like incognito. >> how many years have you been
11:18 am
covering sports? >> forever. >> forever. okay. >> i want to add to that. i covered the national football league for 35 years. i covered those big boy, big bad oakland raiders in the early 1980s. i have never seen anything close to this. >> never. >> never. >> you know hazing is part of the culture. it's one thing to, i don't know, pick up water bottles. throw down at a restaurant, it's quite another to plop down $15,000 for a group of guys to go to vegas. >> this is beyond bullying. this is like harassment in the work place times two or three. you have a voice mail that has been unarthed that is shocking with racial tones in the voice mail, with death threats, with talking about his mother, things along these lines. again, you have to consider the individual that's involved here, guy that's very sensitive. and i tell you, everybody is picking on incognito, but you can't let his teammates off the
11:19 am
hook, either. his nickname in the locker room is big weirdo. justified or not, that's his nickname. >> let me play this clip to broaden it out. hard knocks, this hbo show, they take you bhiepd the scenes, training camp for the nill. this is something that happened to the rookie player with the jets. roll it. >> sit him up. >> he needs shaving cream. >> come on. >> icy hot. >> there you go. there you go. >> oh. >> that's mean. >> way to be a good sporlt. >> has a player ever walked off the job for hazing? that seems sort of, you know, fairly innocuous. >> from the oakland raiders in the '80s, i saw worse than that, but the level we're talking
11:20 am
about here with this guy is beyond anything i have heard of. but here's something else. no one is talking about who is the blame for this. >> where are the coaches? the coaches know? are they turning the other way? >> they have to be. plus, consider this, in the modern nfl, before these guys are drafted, they're dissected like 200 or 250 or 300-pound frogs. they know, the coaching staff and dolphins officials had to know how sensitive martin was. that's part one. number two, there is no way in the world they could not have known about these threatening text messages, and let alone, perhaps the voice mail existed, and the hazing that got out of control. so they should not be left off the hook here. they're nearly as responsible as incognito. >> questions are asked. investigation under way. terrance moore, come back. thank you so much. >> and what was supposed to be a jump for fun ends up being a jump for their lives. as these two planes high up in the air, carrying sky divers,
11:21 am
collide, crash midair. their amazing story of survival, and i'll talk to one sky diver who survived a scare of his own. that's next. life with crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis is a daily game of "what if's". what if my abdominal pain and cramps end our night before it even starts? what if i eat the wrong thing? what if? what if i suddenly have to go? what if? but what if the most important question is the one you're not asking? what if the underlying cause of your symptoms is damaging inflammation?

this could have been a disaster. i mean, under any other circumstances, it would have been a disaster, but 11 people, two pilots, nine passengers here, survived a midair collision at 12,000 feet. one of the pilots landed his damaged airplane, but the rest took parachutes. they pulled the chute, that included the pilot of plane number two. which broke apart and crashed.
11:25 am
so these nine jumpers, they are described as veteran skydivers. so this was apparently some sort of maneuver, clearly gone awry. with me now from sacramento, california, greg stapleton. he's back on the show, he, too, is an experienced skydiver. he, too, survived his own brush with death. nice to see you. >> good to see you. >> this collision happened saturday over superior, wisconsin. you told us when you first heard about it, your first question was how many died? was it tough for you to believe that everyone survived? >> it was really hard to believe. i expected at least a plane load, maybe both plane loads and pilots had died. so i was kind of worried about what the body count was going to be by the end of the night. i was surprised when i heard everybody walked away. pretty miraculous. >> incredible. i guess they were planning on pulling off some sort of big maneuver. two planes, nine skydivers. do you know what was supposed to happen, and then obviously what did happen?
11:26 am
>> normally, when they have a large group of jumpers and they use two aircraft, they fly the planes in formation, which means they're very cles to each other, flying the same flight path at the same speed, at the same altitude so the jumpers can get together and form a big group. and that's how you get large groups together. and the idea was to do one last jump for the night, and get everybody together for one big jump. >> so typically, then, i guess the planes would have to be flying pretty close to one another for everyone to jump together and hold hands and clearly, they came way too close. i guess. go ahead. >> a little too close. >> little bit. little bit. after one of the skydivers said after he pulled his chute, he saw this airplane wreckage just falling all around him. have you ever heard in all your years, craig, have you heard of anything this bizarre happen in a jump? >> no, this is the stuff that makes legends and scary to hear this is happen, but we're all mindful of planes, skydivers
11:27 am
have been hit with a single plane in the past. to have two in the air and going out of control, that's real scary. >> are you still jumping after you landed on that tuft of hay or grass in a vineyard and miraculously survived yourself? >> i managed to make another 350 jumps this year. >> craig stapleton, goodness. thank you for coming back on. we appreciate you. good luck there. now to this one, the toronto mayor accused of smoking crack cocaine, issues an apology, but stops short of coming clean. >> i'm not going to sit here and say i'm never going to drink again. that's not realistic. >> in moderation. >> everything in moderation is fine. >> has this controversy in toronto affected the mayor's ratings? surprising poll results coming up next. and speaking of controversy, have you seen this picture? ah, yes, kanye west spotted wearing the confederate flag. i want you to be the judge on that, and you'll hear his explanation coming up.

11:32 am
egyptian president mohamed morsi is off to a chaotic start. morsi arrived for the trial and immediately invoked his status as egypt's first freely elected president. and that is about as far as things got there. the trial was postponed until early next year. live in cairo, ian, it sounds like it barely got going before it was postponed. what happened inside there? >> that's right, brooke. initially, we thought it was going to be a quick, noneventful procedural trial, but really was anything but. morsi came strolling in, wearing a suit, not the typical white jumper that most defendants are seen wearing when asked who he was, he said he was the president of the republic, and that he did not recognize the legitimacy of the court. his other co-defendants, the seven others, also broke out into chants, saying that they do not recognize the legitimacy of the court twice. the judge had to adjourn the court, calm things down. probably the most bizarre was two local egyptian journalists
11:33 am
got in a fight with a lawyer. the journalists chanted -- angry at him. and that stopped proceedings for a while as well. now, they finally were able to get through it. there's over 5,000 pages of court documents that lawyers are going to have to go over, as well as morsi will have to decide if he wants a lawyer to represent him. now, if he does have a lawyer represent him, that means he recognizes the legitimacy of the court. that's a big question that will be answered before the court comes back on january 8th. >> all right, ian lee, thank you so much for us in cairo. now to toronto, and the mayor there, he says he is not going anywhere. he's not stepping down. he's not going to resign. even though police say they have a video that purportedly shows him smoking a crack pipe. after months of scandalous headlines alleging crack cocaine abuse and bizarre behavior.
11:34 am
rob ford took to his radio show yesterday to come clean. he admits he drinks but denied using crack. even says he wants police to release the video for everyone to see for themselves. >> i'm not -- i have made mistakes. i have made mistakes, and all i can do right now is apologize. i'm not going to sit here and say i'm never going to drink again. that's not realistic. >> everything in moderation, bob. >> everything is moderation is fine. >> whatever this video shows, folks, toronto residents deserve to see it. >> despite the calls for him to resign, he says he's not going anywhere. in fact, since all this broke, i want to show you this one poll that shows the approval ratings are up by five percentage points after those police comments. criminal defense attorney drew is here with me.
11:35 am
we were talking in the commercial break. my, how the system is so different in canada versus the u.s. in the u.s., if there's a video, throw it out there. >> even the chief of police made reference, that may be the way they do it in america. what's happened here is it's one thing that reporters made it available last may, but then last thursday when the chief of police specifically references the video, the mayor in fairness to him is saying, hey, it's one thing for those guys to do it, but you're the top law dog in the city, and now you're talking about it. well, let the people decide for themselves. the chief is hiding behind the rule in canada, it can't go out unless it goes through the court system and eventually the case. the mayor is saying there is no case. >> what do you make of the fact the mayor is saying show the video? i want everyone to see the video. the police contend he's smoking crack. >> either he's smoking crack because it's so stupid. >> why would he want to show
11:36 am
everyone the video? >> or he knows he didn't. he may be shown doing something inculpaatory, like smoking pots or cigarettes, but he knows it will not show it shows him smoking a crack pipe. >> where do you think it goes? >> at some point, it's going to come out, whether through judicial order or through the media, through a leak. because i live in america, it's always going to come out and everybody is going to decide for themselves. i seem to remember a mayor somewhere like washington, d.c. with something like this similar happening. >> yes, yes. marion berry. yes. we'll see you next hour, talking about the miami dolphins with you. meanwhile, central connecticut state university is locked down after a man with a gun was reportedly seen on campus. a campus wide alert told everyone to shelter in place while police investigate. no shots have been fired, as far as we know. our latest ireport -- our latest report, rather, is police are going door to door and floor to floor in some of the dormitories

only make me stronger ♪ ♪ i need you to hurry up now because i can't wait much longer ♪ >> kanye west making headlines again. this time for sporting a controversial and historic symbol of racism to so many people. kanye west says he is taking ownership of the confederate flag, and quote, made it his flag. here it is. flag is featured on clothing promoting his tour, this weekend, paparazzi snapped him wearing a bomber jacket with the flag on his right sleeve. listen, kanye's known for making social commentary in his music. his latest song entitled "new
11:42 am
slaves" is a perfect example of that, but is the clothing a poorly executed publicity stunt, or does he have a point. this is what he himself said on an la.a. radio station. >> any energy you've got, the confederate flag represented slavery. that's my abstract take on what i know about it, right? so i made the song new slaves. i took the confederate flag and made it my flag. now what are you going todo? >> let me talk about this with nischelle turner and mark lamont hill. nischelle, first to you. i mean, listen, isn't this just kanye being kanye, pushing the envelope, wanting buzz, or is it more than that? >> when you first see the picture and don't hear what he has to say, you may well think that. when you hear what he has to say, listen to the radio interview, it does seem like mabe me is trying to make a political statement, also a marketing statement, because he
11:43 am
has other clothing with the confederate flag on it, but it's like what i lot of african-americans and hip-hop artists have done with the n-word, what he's saying is i'm going to take it, embrace it, flip it, and make it a term of indirement. does it work? i'm not sure because it's such a jarring image that people will have a hard time wrapping their arms around it, just like they do with the n-word. >> mark lamont hill, do you think the statement he's making is a valid one? >> in an abstract sense, it's valid. people have the right to say whatever they want and do whatever they want. it is possible for people to reclaim words and use it with different meanings. i think the african american community has used the n-word throughout history in a range of interesting and complicated ways. but the confederate flag represents such a deep and dark moment in history, it can't be erased by conykanye wearing it.

just as if he puts it on his body, it erases racism. it takes a heck of an ego to think you can erase 400 years of racism by putting a hoodie on. >> because he had this other material, these t-shirts, what would happen and how would he feel if one of his white fans went and bought his merchandise and his material and wore that? wid you still are the same feeling? that's my question in all of this. >> don't you think young white fans go to a kanye show, you buy a shirt, a jacket, is that okay? >> again, he would say that these new generations of fans, they have different sensibilities. the white fans aren't racist and they also want to reappropriate the term. you can't single that out. it's not like he wrote slavery is dead. there's all sorts of things he could do with the image, but just to have a confederate flag, not only could a new fan do it, the guy in the pickup tragwho waves the old flag, could buy
11:45 am
kanye merchandise and wear the same thing. it's a dangerous thing if you don't have more commentary. >> you know what this reminded me of, i'm pretty sure we covered this on tv, the brad paisley and l.l. cool j., the accidental racist, how was that received? >> first of all, that wasn't a great song, so it wasn't received really well. those are two great artists who just didn't make a good collaboration. i think the good thing about all of this, brooke, is that the three of us are on television talking about thesis issues. having a very intelligent conversation that i think has been lacking a lot, especially in the music industry and especially about these type of topics because they keep coming up. so obviously, we need to keep having these conversations. >> do you think, mark lamont hill, between eminem and what we have seen recently, the new album coming out, the homophobic lyrics and what we're seeing here with kanye west, do they sit down in between albums thinking, what can i do or say
11:46 am
that will get me buzz when my music comes out? >> sometimes i feel like that. to me, the most interesting kanye west is when he's doing it by accident. when he says the thing about george bush after hurricane katrina, when he's giving a response about glass ceilings in the fashion industry, he's being real and honest. but when he starts thinking about being messy and controversial, you get a mess like this. sometimes they're doing it to get attention and it's the wrong kind of attention. >> it matters, as you say, when it's real. mark lamont hill and nischelle turner, thanks, you two, very much. tonight, a special edition of ac 360 later. anderson cooper will take a look at race and justice in america. 10:00 eastern on cnn. make sure you tune in. and election day, it is hours away. people across the country will be heading to the polls tomorrow. coming up next, you have three contests getting national attention. find out which race could help shape the 2016 presidential election.

wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke.
11:49 am
eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

add alleged bullying to the list. miami dolphins lineman richie incognito is suspended indefinitely as the nfl investigates allegations of misconduct toward a fellow teammate. his lineman jonathan martin left the team last week, taking a leave of absence. and this cause of this abrupt departure really remained a mystery until yesterday. when martin's lawyer made formal allegations of player misconduct. and it did not take long for several media reports to begin to trickle in naming incognito as the main culprit here. one report saying martin was required to contribute $15,000 to veteran players to go to vegas. by the way, it's a trip martin himself didn't even take. he paid, though, he says because he feared the consequences. incognito took to twitter blasting the reports, tweeting this. shame on you, to espn, shame on you for attaching my name to false speculation.
12:02 pm
i won't be holding my breath for an apology. hours later, the nfl took action, handed down the suspension. for more on mr. incognito, i want to bring in chris draft, a former nfl player, former teammate of richie incognito. and also with me, criminal defense attorney drew finley. drew, in a minute, but chris, i have a lot of questions for awro. you played with incognito in st. louis, in buffalo. you said he took cheap shots on the field. do all these accusations surprise you? >> well, they surprise me in that cheap shots on the field or, you know, when you have, i guess, unsportsmanlike conduct on the field, that doesn't necessarily mean that somebody is doing something crazy off the field. so in terms of the allegations right now, i think you have to definitely be -- it needs to be clear exactly what happened. but i have seen in nfl, kind of
12:03 pm
hazing really go from very small, meaning go pick up breakfast, or up to, you know, some high amounts of money. >> so i want to ask about hazing in a second. let me go back to incognito. let's talk off the field. what was this guy like as you knew him off the field? >> well, i tell you, he was really kind of a big teddy bear off the field. my wife actually loved him. and his last name, incognito, i would tell her, that's not his name on the field. you know, he would be incognito off the field, but on the field, you definitely knew where he was at and he was running around, a very aggressive guy, getting after it. >> i was talking, because i want to ask you about jonathan martin. i was talking to someone covering the nfl for 35 years. it sounds like it's tough to be a smart guy in professional football. martin, brainy, stanford. to me, this story sounds like seventh grade, more muscle and money.
12:04 pm
>> it absolutely does. you know, again, i can't say exactly what went on. you know, you would think he would stand up for himself and maybe deal with it with the coach in kind of deal with this. also, the other thing is usually during the season, it doesn't get so out of control. you know, so much out of control where this guy feels like he has to walk off because he feels like nobody has his back. i think that's really what's absolutely horrible with this situation right now, is that it wasn't, you know, if it was ritchie possibly by himself or something, but somehow within that group, that tight group of offensive linemen, he didn't feel like he belonged. he felt like, i have to leave, i have to get out of here. >> can you be smart in sports? can you becerebral and play professional football? >> absolutely. i have a stanford degree. you can be. you absolutely want to be.
12:05 pm
they want smart guys. but i think, getting in the situation, somehow there was, you know, smart is one thing, but if there is an issue between somebody taking advantage of you so much where you feel like this team that you're on, something else has to be done. and you know, ideally, the miami dolphins would have handled it before it turned into whatever it is right now, which is them losing two of their star starting offensive linemen and potentially destroying their season. >> i want to ask what you have seen, but i want to play a clip. for people at home, i don't know what goes on behind doors. this is a clip from hard knocks, takes you to training camp. this is an example, what happened to a jets rookie. take a look. >> sit him right up. >> we need some shaving cream. >> that's funny. come on, that's easy hot. >> there you go. there you go.
12:06 pm
>> way to be a good sport. >> chris, i don't know if you have a monitor. basically, it's this guy hog tied. iced, gatorade. powder all over him. what the worst thing you have seen in your years? >> something similar to that. i think probably that doesn't compare as much when somebody has to spend a lot of money. i think somewhere in the thousands of range, i have seen those. but i think what you're seeing, there's a change. when i first came in the league, there was this hazing where a veteran felt like he wouldn't even talk to you as a rookie. that never really flew for me because i looked at it. my dad had two kids. me and my brother at the same time that i was coming into the
12:07 pm
league. how are you going to haze somebody that this could be a dad? but some of that stuff, you know, people are holding on to. i think what you're seeing right now with what is going on with richie and some of the things that have happened with the nfl is it's going to have to go. the powder, the tape, all these things. and this day and age, it's just not -- it's just not cool to be a bully anymore. >> it's not at all. and on that note, you know, who knows, drew, to you, we have all these accusations. this guy incognito was suspended, which seems to be sort of unprecedented in the league. could he lose his job? could he be fined? do we know what could happen? >> i think we're seeing a lining up of stars but not in a good way. there are a lot of undrafted lineman for a million dollars a year would take shaving cream and ice thrown at them. when we're done, we're dealing with an issue of emotional instability, combined with being harassed like he is.
12:08 pm
bullying is for the school yard, elementary school, middle school, sometimes high school. not nfl players. we have a combination of two events. let there be no doubt, we now hear hints of hospitalization. we're talking about an overly sensitive person who we should all be concerned about, who the dolphins should be concerned about, and who his teammates should be concerned about. combining that with somebody who has a reputation for being forceful and exaggerating in this long custom. >> although cres said he was like a big oversized teddy bear off the field. >> that may happen off the field, who knows, but when you have somebody overly sensitive and somebody who is predisposed to emotional insecurity, to emotional instability, it's a bad combination and the dolphins see that now, which is why they have taken immediate action. they need to hold their players accountable as a victim and an aggressor. >> drew, and chris, thank you. both of you. meantime, classes have been canceled for the rest of the day at central connecticut state university in new britain.

nthat's why they deserve... aer anbrake dance. get 50% off new brake pads and shoes. now we find out some two years later, that ingerman government is sitting on a stash of artwork banned by the nazis valued at a billion dollars or more. quick history lesson. one time house painter adolf hitler considered himself an artist and outlawed confiscated works by jews and other works he considered to be jewish influenced. fast ford with to 2011 and german tax officials investigating this munich apartment found this treasure-trove of stolen,
12:14 pm
confiscated or bartered masterpieces. i'm talking picasso, matisse, renoir. some 1500 paintings, but the thing is they have kept this under wraps. it's kind of strange. with us, aaron mclaughlin. how did they find the art? was it accident, pure luck? >> hi, brooke. there's lots of questions still surrounding this find. and a bit of frustration, i'm sensing, from members of the art community that i have spoken to as well. german authorities are still not confirming nor denying the presence of this find. what we know, we know based on a german magazine called "focus." now, "focus" is reporting in 2011, customs officials entered the home of an 80-year-old art dealer on suspension of tax fraud. they searched his place and found this incredible cache. some 1500 pieces of art by picasso and matisse, and at the time, phoses reports that german
12:15 pm
authorities suspected this might have been the result of stealing by the nazis back in the '30s and '40, so they removed the artwork from his apartment, stored it in a warehouse in munich where it's been for the past two years. >> why -- again, this is artwork worth a billion dollars. why did they then sit on the art? have they said? >> well, certainly the billion dollar question. german authorities at the moment simply aren't saying. but potengsm claimants are now coming forward asking german officials to disclose what exactly they have. they're asking for a list of names, descriptions, photographs so the rightful owners of some of the pieces could possibly be found. i have talked to a lawyer by the name of christopher marinello. he represents a family that could possibly have a claim on a matisse that was reportedly found inside this apartment. take a listen to what he had to say. >> we're being told that they
12:16 pm
were worried about the number of claim nlts that would come forward, but you know, two years is a long time to wait. and people have died. claimants of this era are in their 80s and 90s. and records are disappearing. this should have been the first thing they did when they found these things, is put them online so the entire world can stake a claim. >> now, if this report is true, if some of these works had in fact been stolen by the nazis, art experts tell me this would just be a drop in the bucket of an ocean of artwork that has gone missing from that time period. brooke. >> erin in london, thank you. for the very first time, we are hearing from cleveland kidnapping victim michelle knight. she first stood before that courtroom and told the world what ariel castro did to her. and why he should spend the rest of his life in prison. do you remember this? >> i will live on. you will die a little every day.
12:17 pm
as you think about the 11 years in atrocities you have inflicted on us. the death penalty would be so much easier. you don't deserve that. you deserve to spend life in prison. >> well, today, we're now witnessing more moments of bravery from michelle knight. in a paid interview with dr. phil, she shares some of the startling, disturbing details about her time inside that home in cleveland. but i have to warn you as we play the clip, some of the stuff she talks about, it's incredibly tough to hear. >> so he gets you in this room. what did he tie you up with? >> one of those orange extension cords. i was tied up like a fish. an ornament on the wall. you know, that's the only way i can describe it. i was hanging like this. my feet and i was tied by my neck and my arms with the
12:18 pm
extension cord going like that. >> oh, my god. so he tied your hands and feet and also around your neck? and hung you? >> in august, castro was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years. after pleading guilty to 937 counts, including murder and kidnapping. then a month later, he was found dead in his prison kell. anderson cooper talked to dr. phil about this exclusive interview with michelle knight. watch it tonight, ac 360, 8:30 eastern on cnn. >> missed by a matter of minutes. new details about the alleged shooter at l.a.x. airport orn friday morning. how his family alerted police. how police responded to the warnings moments too late. that's next. on the u.s.s. saratoga in 1982.

12:24 pm
according to this woman who knows ciancia, he said he was going to kill himself. that sent them to call the authorities in their town. they then reached out to the los angeles police department who then went to do a welfare check, but seauns yauz was already gone. he asked another roommate to give him a ride to the airport. this is what the woman said happened after that. >> at that moment that they're seeing this on the tv, their third roommate comes back and said, i just dropped off paul at l.a.x. he had to go home. they just knew. i think you just padropped off paul to a shooting. >> and they said that according to this woman, that these two -- i should say the other room mates, were actually handcuffed. they were questioned. at this point, police do believe that ciancia acted alone, brooke. >> stephanie elam for us in los angeles. thank you. coming up, new secrets revealed from the 2012 campaign trail, including chris christie

12:31 pm
people. this is also in the wake, you remember, of osama bin laden being killed. when this quote sort of leaked over the weekend, a lot of critics of the drone program, a lot of civil liberties folks on twitter were sort of, you know, interested, intrigued by that quote. president obama has a nobel peace prize and here he's saying he's really good at killing people. that was one of the more interesting tidbts that has come out of the book so far. >> the other is the empty chair, clint eastwood moment at the rnc. tell me what happened, according to these, you know, guys. what happened while clint eastwood was on the stage, behind the scenes? >> it's been reported, you know, the romney campaign was very scripted at the convention, but they kind of let clint eastwood freelance. however, backstage, once they kind of saw how bizarre this is, clint eastwood doing a performance art act, talking to a chair, the campaign freaked out. they ran to the control room to try to yank him offstage.

mitt romney himself thought it was funny at first and then was a little confused. the book reports than romney's top adviser, stuart stevens, actually vomited backstage, he was so frustrated and aghast at what was unfolding before them, this total train wreck that threw the convention completely off message and overshadowed mitt's speech. >> we were there, that was a moppant, for sure. chris christie. polls show he's clearly cruising toward re-election as new jersey governor. a republican, this is a very blue state. he supported romney, was even considered as his running mate. what he he advite romney to do when it came to newt gingrich. >> newt gingrich trounlsed mitt romney in the south carolina primary, when romney thought he was going to win it a few days out. it threw the romney campaign reeling. apparently, chris christie got on the phone, the book says,
12:33 pm
with mitt romney, and said you've got to kick the blank out of this guy. newt gingrich is a joke, and he advised the campaign to go after him hard in florida, which they did. they might not have needed chris christie's advice to do that, but they nuked newt gingrich in florida with a bunch of tv ads. it's interesting to go behind the scenes and hear these two very prominent republicans talking to each other about someone else, newt gingrich, our colleague at cn nrk. >> he is our colleague. thank you. speaking of the former house speaker, newt gingrich will be on piers morgan tonight, responding to the insult. watch that tonight, 9:00 eastern. let's tong politics more. more with donna brazile and leslie sanchez. donna is a cnn political commentat commentator, and leslie is a republican strategist. since we're on chris christie, let's begin there. he speaks his mind. just ask newt gingrich. he's a republican, as we mentioned, in this blue state of
12:34 pm
new jersey. going after these voters aggressively. donna, assuming he wins tomorrow as a democrat, is he the kind of republican that maybe makes you nervous when you think about 2016? >> i don't think his prnl appeal. he's charismatic, very comfortable in his skin, but he's also anti-union. you saw over the weekend where he screamed at a teacher. anti-gay. anti-pro choice. i don't know how far and fast he will be able to campaign across the country. but look. he is someone that speaks his mind. people like that. he's tough on the issues. people like that. so, you know, i give him a 50/50 chance of running in 2016. but remember the republican primary, this is not the republican primary of my grandparents' generation. this is a very different republican party to seek side
12:35 pm
him. >> times have changed. leslie, tell donna why she's wrong. >> because people like strong leadership. people like somebody who stands for what they believe in. he's not going to kowtow to the juniors. he stood up to the education unions, to a lot of other efforts to make new jersey viable and strong. he also reached across the aisle, which is what you see a lot of economic conservatives, a lot of moderate republicans, looking for some sort of coalition building to make government run properly. that's really the platform he's going to be working on. to do it in my state, that's the appeal of somebody very strong, that strong leadership candidate with christie. >> let's continue this hypothetical 2016 conversation with hillary clinton. she picked up this endorsement over the weekend, she's not running, at least not yet. take a listen. >> 2016 is hillary's time. run, hillary. run! if you run, you'll win, and we'll all win. >> senator chuck schumer, he is
12:36 pm
already in iowa. he's indorsing hillary clinton for president. donna brazile, is he getting ahead of himself there? >> oh, look, chuck schumer has known hillary clinton for many, many years. they served together on the united states senate. he was at the jefferson jackson dinner in des moines, iowa. i'm sure his support and the support of others, including at least a letter i heard was leaked from democratic senators, will give her a great deal of support if she decides to run. >> leslie sanchez, does hillary clinton make you nervous? >> i'm excited to see hillary clinton jump in the race again. i think that's going to make for a very dynamic race. she's very much has all the toys in her toy box, like she did before. i think she's going to run like she did in 2008. she has all the resources, all the consultants, all the money, the candidates. she's the democratic titan, and many believe she's the inevitable nominee. it was interesting more so that the senator gave a snub to his own governor, andrew cuomo, who
12:37 pm
has been quietly talking about building a 2016 campaign. there's internal politics on the left, very much, and it's going to come down, again, to women voters. the female voter and gender gap is going to be all the talk in 2016. >> ladies, thank you very much. appreciate you today. coming up, a new tool in the fight to prevent drug overdoses. a drug that could help stop this epidemic. we'll show you how it works. a real-life scenario caught on video, next. i t bonuses g my charitable giving. really. where i work, over 400 people are promoted every day. healthcare starting under $40 a month. i got education benefits. i work at walmart. i'm a pharmacist. sales associate. i manage produce. i work in logistics. there's more to walmart than you think. vo: opportunity. that's the real walmart. this is the creamy chicken corn chowder.

if you have a friend or a loved one who is hooked on heroin, i think you'll want to hear this because it would
12:41 pm
provide a little peace of mind. there is a drug out there now that reverses a heroin overdose. and we're about to see how it works. this is the real deal. you're about to see an overdosing addict brought back from the edge of death. here's our chief medical correspondent, dr. sanjay gupta. >> what you're looking at is pretty shocking. a heroin addict overdosing. her name is liz. she's been using drugs since she was 11. today, she's 29. adam and louise were both with her that night in august. they both volunteer with the program in greensboro, north care car, that provides clean needles and other assistance to addicts. >> she seemed to be pretty unresponsive. we were noticing a blue of the lips, a lack of oxygen. her breathing had become quite shallow. >> once someone is not breathing and not responding to stimulus,
12:42 pm
you give them breath, and at that time, i usually administer a shot. >> watch what happens next. >> we gave her about 60 units of narcan. >> also known as noloxan, can reverse an overdose from heroin and other drugs, like oxycodone. another sternal rub, another shot of narcan. >> giving her the rest. >> and finally, liz begins to come to. >> liz? are you okay? you went out. we gave you mouth-to-mouth resuzitation. some narcan. you overdosed. can you sit up? all right, come on. >> when someone takes heroin, the drug locks on to receptors
12:43 pm
in the brain. it slows the body down. lock up too many and you stop breathing. nalozone can free up the receptors, essentially bringing you back to life. you might wonder, that video of liz, is that real? we showed it to four emergency room doctors who said yes, this is what a recovery with narcan looks like. >> i can't believe that somebody cared about me enough or, you know, loved me enough to bring me back. >> back to right a light that somehow went wrong. we met liz on the day she went to rehab, packing up her things, looking at the album of her 19-month-old daughter. >> i felt so separated and disassociated from my daughter because i felt like, basically like i wasn't good enough to take care of her. i can't finish school. i can't hold down a job.
12:44 pm
i can't, you know, do any of this like normal stuff that everyday people have absolutely no problem, like, it's not a challenge for them. >> nolozone gave liz a second chance. it also gave linda a second chance. she remembers the day she found her son steve face down in the front yard. >> my husband ran out and started rescue breathing. and i ran in and got the narcan. right here. he was laying on his back. totally blue. so the narcan, as soon as it got into his nostrils, he started to stir and wake up. and came to. thank god for narcan. >> narcan is distributed as part of massachusetts opioid
12:45 pm
prevention program. >> it was targeted for high-risk injection drug users. we soon started learning about parents going to needle exchanges. >> today, they distribute the product to addicts, first responders, and learn to cope, a support group for parents of addicts. linda has been going to learn to cope meetings for the past nine years. >> nasal narcan, the overdose reversal drug is available at every meeting. if you're in this room, you should have narcan. >> they have distributed hundreds of kits to its members who have managed to reverse at least nine overdoses. >> tinging of the lips, fingernails, anything like that, also. if you -- >> it's ready to administer, and it will go up one nostril. >> you must, must, must have narcan if you have an addict. you must. absolutely.
12:46 pm
because the whole trick of it is to keep them alive until they finally get it. >> sanjay gupta reporting there. how about that? coming up, some counties in colorado not really liking the new liberal initiatives in the state government, so they're thinking they might want to divide the state of colorado into two separate states. also, the cost of day care. parents, can you relate to this one? it eclipses the cost of a college education in parts of our country. what's a mom and dad to do? we'll break down the numbers for you after this quick break. e mo. afghanistan in 2009. on the u.s.s. saratoga in 1982.

[ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% testosterone gel. the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breast-feeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body,
12:48 pm
enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood clots in the legs. tell your doctor about your medical conditions and medications, especially insulin, corticosteroids, or medicines to decrease blood clotting. in a clinical study, over 80% of treated men had their t levels restored to normal. talk to your doctor about all your symptoms. get the blood tests. change your number. turn it up. androgel 1.62%. but chantix helped me do it. i told my doctor i think i'm... i'm ready. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. i knew that i could smoke for the first 7 days. i knew that i wasn't putting nicotine back into my body to try to quit. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation,
12:49 pm
depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. if i could describe being a nonsmoker, i would say "awesome." [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. the trial of deposed egyptian president mohammad morsi was postponed today just about as soon as it got under way here. morsi arrived for trial immediately invoking his status as egypt's first freely elected president.
12:50 pm
he insists the court has no authority to put him on trial and that's about as far as things got there. morsi's co-defendants and supporters in the courtroom shouted at the judge. others in the crowd shouted at morsi's supporters. at one point, a scuffle broke out in the courtroom. after taking not just one but two breaks today, the judge sent word that the trial has been postponed until january 8th. is america about to annex its 51st state? some say in northern colorado they are being ignored in the state house and have had enough. 11 counties are now pushing the state to split into two, becoming north colorado. ana cabrera is live in denver for us. tell us about this initiative. >> reporter: as you said, it's about forming a new state in the 11 rural counties in northern colorado, communities of farmland, ranchers, there are oil and gas facilities in these communities, and they are upset
12:51 pm
by what they're calling an yurn based denver-centric state legislature and they are angry over some of the initiatives that have advanced like new gun control laws. they are talking about the expanded oil and gas regulations, increased energy and renewable energy standards they say are threatening not only their rural lifestyle but also the rural livelihood for the folks that live in this area. so they have banded together to really have their voices heard. they believe they are being ignored. it's that whole idea of urban versus rural, republican versus democrat. here in colorado, it is a democratic majority in the house and senate with a democratic governor. they say they have been ignored and disrespected and this is their way to send a message they won't accept the status quo. >> they want their voices heard but really, what's the likelihood this will happen? >> reporter: good question. really, slim to none.
12:52 pm
it is possible but extremely unlikely. we do know nothing's going to happen immediately following tomorrow night's vote. even if these initiatives actually pass, in these 11 counties, it's a nonbinding secession vote meaning it's more or less an opinion poll again meant to send a message. it could become official if after tomorrow night, the state legislature approved this 51st state idea and then it would have to go to congressional approval as well. that is very unlikely to happen. the last time there was a state to break away was west virginia. that was back in 1863. and technically speaking, the last state to secede was north carolina back in 1861. we're talking about the civil war era. it does send a strong message. >> okay. thank you. you have to see this video here out of north georgia. absolutely terrifying. it begins fairly routine, man and woman gassing up this pickup

couple minutes from the closing bell, i can tell you shares of blackberry taking another beating today on wall street. the struggling smartphone company announcing today it is no longer for sale. it also said that the president and ceo, thorsten heins, is stepping down. fairfax financial, which intended to buy blackberry instead will pump $1 billion into the company. blackberry still plans to lay off about 4500 workers by the end of the year. and parents, it costs almost a quarter million dollars to raise a child for 18 years and day care during those early years is a huge part of that expense. in fact, some people have been doing the math here and in some parts of the country, the annual cost of infant and child care is
12:58 pm
more than the college tuition. cnn's alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. you know it's not cheap. >> i feel the pain. i really do. ask any parent, especially the working parents, tell you what, child care is a huge chunk of their budgets, with day care costs getting into the tens of thousands of dollars but get this. as you said, it can cost more than it costs to send your kid to college. this is coming from a new study from child care aware of america. in 21 states, day care actually costs more than median rent. put two kids in day care, it's more expensive than rent in all 50 states. it's crazy. in 31 states, day care costs more than college at public universities. how much? well, it's really going to depend on where you live. look at families in the midwest and south, they pay the least, $15,000 to $17,000 a year for two kids. the northeast and west, they pay $18,000 to $22,000 a year.
12:59 pm
>> looks like the northeast, i know. that's where you are, it is not cheap. they say listen, i'm not a mom yet, maybe one day, but i don't know. i don't know. i know it's worth it. why is it so darned expensive, though? >> because the cost of living, it really plays a big part in the costs. day care is cheapest in the south and midwest because think about it, pretty much everything else is cheapest there, too. housing, food, utilities, insurance. it also depends on state regulations. in massachusetts, it's required that day care centers have one teacher for every three infants so it's more expensive in massachusetts compared to say mississippi, where it's one teacher for every five infants. so you see where that dichotomy is. just the cost of living really affects those day care costs. if you want to really check out how it is in your state, go to cnn money for more information. >> thank you very much. before i let you go, i want to update you on a story we have been following out of central connecticut state university. one person is in custody following reports of a gunman on
1:00 pm
campus. that is what we have from the school's twitter account. no shots were fired that we knew of. the shelter in place has been lifted. classes are canceled for the rest of the day. thank you so much for being with me on this monday. let's send things to jake tapper. "the lead" starts right now. in this case, some clear red flags were not ignored, yet the l.a.x. shooting happened anyway. jake tapper. this is "the lead." the national lead. it came down to a matter of minutes, but it did not go the lapd's way. a police chief who warned the los angeles force from three time zones away about the l.a.x. suspect joins us in a matter of moments. the politics lead. a new book claims the obama/biden campaign was a taylor swift song waiting to happen. that's one of the juicy insider details from the election. obama and romney campaign officials dishing dirt and
